Medicare Q.I. bill signed, but...

The President today signed HR 3971, which among other things extends the Medicare Qualified Individual program that pays Medicare Part B premiums for some low-income people. There is post on this below. But the bill does take something away -- Medicare and Medicaid will no longer pay for some erectile dysfunction medications in 2006 (Medicaid) and 2007 (Medicare). I can't find any news stories yet on Bush's signature, just this note on Also, has some background and links on bill here.
